Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. Drama Deepens

There is far more to this story  than is being reported.   Otherwise this all would have been handled more smoothly.  Not the greatest PR moves by a sitting member of congress.

Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. isn’t returning to work anytime soon. The congressman’s staff said he’ll need “extended” in-patient treatment for the exhaustionthat forced his medical leave of absence from Congress. 

A statement from Jackson’s office read:

“Congressman Jackson’s medical condition is more serious than we thought and initially believed read a statement from his office released Thursday morning. Recently, we have been made aware that he has grappled with certain physical and emotional ailments privately for a long period of time.”

Jackson began his medical sabbatical June 10; his staff didn’t make the announcement until June 25. Since then no details of his treatment have been released and yesterday’s statement will only add to the speculation. At last week’s City Council meeting Jackson’s wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th) would only say of her husband’s condition “I love my husband very much” and that her first priority was to her children.

  1. He has the same illness as his father – ya can’t cure stupid… And being as phoney as his old man doesn’t help either. Time to pull the plug on both of them.
